As educational hardware and software improves, technology-rich classrooms are more and more common. However, moving beyond a technology-rich classroom is a classroom using blended learning.

It's Valentine's Day this weekend and we are getting ready to celebrate this holiday with our students and community. When my own kids were younger, I remember always looking for fun, yet educational ideas, to plan for their classroom Valentine's Day parties.

PebbleGo is the most popular research tool for elementary students, and there are several helpful features that you may not know about.
